The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the nation’s only congressionally chartered museum in its field.
We visited this excellent museum in October of 2012 ... it is great place for adults and children alike to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early research of nuclear development through today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology. The Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate member.
While the museum is several years old, the building is very new and modern, with ample parking and facilities.
For those of us with an interest in the history of aviation, the museum's 5-acre outdoor Heritage Park is one of the highlights of the museum. Several aircraft are on display, including the B-29 Superfortress "Duke of Albuquerque", a B-52 Stratofortress, F-105 Thunderchief, A-7 Corsair and others. In addition, the Heritage Park includes a variety of missiles, bombs and other artifacts of the atomic age.
Parking is free, and there is a nominal admittance fee.
